The mission of St. James Parish Youth Ministries is to create a safe environment where we respond to the spiritual, emotional, psychological, social and physical needs of 6th through 12th graders by providing programs, activities, worship and mission experiences where Jesus Christ will be known and served. Middle school classes include confirmation preparation and current event issues. Senior high classes engage in weekly Bible study from a young person's perspective. As we explore who we are, what we believe, that which we value and the challenges that we face, we will focus on being Beloved Children of God!
